    I go to a village just off Beachy Head.

    There is a wooded bank in the middle of the car park full of snowdrops

    I should probably ban anyone who has spring flowers in February. Taken a few moments ago, here's a picture of my garden. It's just past my car.

    Go ahead and laugh at me, but at least I am enjoying my snow flowers..
    With all the extreme cold we had last month, they multiplied like crazy..
    With all the snow we had, they are nice and tall and rich looking...
    They are still below the surface of the snow, but in full bloom...

    The Clover flowers are the only ones blooming in our yard right now but the drainage ditches are already beginning to bloom forth the bright yellow flowers that make me smile. If I go to my daughters today I will bring my camera and take a few pics of them on the way over there.

    We will have temps in the 70's and Thursday is supposed to reach 80 degrees so nature is being fooled into thinking Spring is around the Corner...while it is still a few miles away as far as I'm concerned.

    I'm not laughing at you, @Steve North. I think it's absolutely delightful that you have flowers blooming underneath the snow. If we got enough snow, I'd plant some, too.

    Shirley..
    Please let me send you some seeds for winter flowers..
    however, remember they are frozen and must be kept frozen till planted in the fall..
    If they thaw, they become winter weeds and not flowers..

    People think I am crazy with those flowers..
    Please do me a favour and tell them they are right with that assumption..

    Thanks for the offer, @Steve North but, sadly, if I had snow flowers, they could only bloom for a day or so each winter. It would break my heart to have them bloom then die so quickly.

    No, you're not crazy. A little daffy, maybe, but not crazy. :D

    I think daffy is a bit better than crazy...

    Actually my wife refers to me as "A NUTTER"...which is also a version of being nuts...
